It is not worth the price it has

The price of the tour is too expensive for what is offered (at least for one person). The excursion did not last 6 hours while being promoted as an 8-hour tour. The guide did not show much interest in explaining what we saw (more than a brief explanation), nor did he put much interest in clarifying questions he asked during the trip. I spent time talking to the driver in Hindi.
